crucible restapi xml parsing fail

Hi I am trying to send a file through restapi which it has special characters (I am using git , I commiited the file and tried to send through restapi), I am using below rest call, but its not anchoring or not generating the review link if the file contains any special characters,

Please let me know hpw to fix this issue

$headers = {"Accept" =>'application/xml', "Content-Type" => 'application/xml', "Authorization" =>'Basic '};
my $responseContent = $client->POST('/rest-service/reviews-v1/?FEAUTH='.$token, $file, $headers);

I used this restapi call
